More than 50,000 music lovers have headed to Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight for Bestival.
It is the last and one of the quirkiest major UK music festivals of the season. Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank is the curator of the event which was first held in 2004.
The annual event has a fancy dress parade on the Saturday, which this year had a theme of wildlife.
James Gray, from Newcastle, dressed as a giraffe for his second Bestival. He said: "It's a really nice atmosphere - everyone's not afraid to dress up and go crazy."
Dressed as brown flies, John Burnetski (l) and John Sergovic travelled from Philadelphia in the US to be at Bestival. Mr Sergovic has attended the event for the last three years.
Lee and Kerri Small, from Rainham in Essex, were attending for the first time.
Made up of more than 20 stages spread across 10 fields, the Bestival site features quirky art installations, including a giant Swiss chicken coop, a roller-disco, an inflatable church and a WI tea tent.
The People's Front room was one of the smallest venues. Created to look like a 19th Century salon, the audience relaxed on settees and armchairs to enjoy informal and intimate performances.
One of the more unusual events was a dancing lesson hosted at Club DaDa, which was held in an ornate, mirrored spiegeltent - a travelling Belgian dancehall.
The four-day sell-out event is the first UK festival to be streamed live on YouTube.
Bestival will conclude with Stevie Wonder performing on the main stage on Sunday.
